A comparative study on the performance of tissue culture raised and conventional crops of sugarcane was made at eight locations in sugar mill area of Nahar Sugar and Allied Industries Ltd., Amloh (Punjab). In vitro raised plantlets of sugarcane varieties viz. CoJ 64 and CoJ 83 were hardened, acclimatized and transplanted to the fields for cane formation. After maturity, the seed material was again sown in the field by sett cutting method along with appropriate control for field evaluation of the crops. On the basis of data, it was observed that the tissue culture raised crop was superior in both agro-morphological and quality traits over the crop raised by conventional method.
